Drive thru testing

Bayhealth Expands Coronavirus Testing

Wednesday, May 27, 2020 | Community Outreach
As the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread nationally and locally, Bayhealth has expanded dates, times, and locations of drive-thru testing.

People with symptoms such as fever, cough or shortness of breath should call the Coronavirus Management Team (CMT) triage line at 302-310-8477 for a screening. The triage line is open Monday – Friday from 8:15 a.m. to 6 p.m. The triage line is staffed by physicians, nurses and advanced practice providers.

Callers meeting screening criteria for COVID-19 will be scheduled for one of our off-site drive-thru testing locations. A second testing location has been added and testing has been expanded to five days a week. Drive-thru testing will take place in Kent County at Dover Downs, and in Sussex County at the Nemours Building on the Bayhealth Sussex Campus.

It is strongly recommended that you do not go to your doctor’s office or emergency department without calling first, since many can isolate at home without being evaluated in person. As always, if you are experiencing a medical emergency, call 911.
